about it. think about the history of innovation. what sets america apart is so many of our great inventions start out in small garages and labs with driven, inspired people who have great ideas, developed them and then they take off. i mention companies that have started this way yesterday. hewlett packard, apple, google, and there are hundreds and perhaps thousands of others. they started from humble beginnings, and they grew spectacularly, creating jobs for millions of americans and lifting up our economy and standard of living. i know an inventor who invented sky vodka, and the vodka he drank disturbed his stomach, so he figured out biologically and chemically what it was, and he invented a vodka called sky vodka. small inventor. that company was subsequently sold, i think for a great deal of money, but it started with one man who had a stomachache from drinking vodka. now, this may be just one type of example, but apple is certainly another type of example. a garage many years ago in california, and out of that emerged this giant company. so these companies start from humble

connell-inhofe amendment. america america my -- mr. merkley: my colleague from texas was addressing this amendment and noting her support for it. i would like to address several reasons that y this amendment is bad policy for america. first and foremost, this amendment increases our addiction to foreign oil. it increases oil consumption by 455 million barrels. right now we import about 9.7 million barrels of oil per day. so this amendment is equivalent to six weeks' worth of oil imports. recognize that gas prices are about $3.50 a gallon. the mcconnell-inhofe amendment amounts to a $68 billion price tag for working families to buy gas, to buy gas from oil imported from overseas. and this isn't a tax that in any way supports our economy. in fact, this is a tax that goes out of our economy to purchase energy from overseas. so, from the middle east, from nigeria, from venezuala. that is very profitable to the companies that supply that oil. it's very profitable to the governments far outside of the united states of america. but it certainly hurts the citizens of our nation. it takes our energy dollar

a lesser america to the next and trillions in unpaid bills. a new report from the government accounting office documents what we instinctively have known, waste and duplication in government cost taxpayers billions of dollars every year. early estimates say between $100 billion and $200 billion. and experts say we could save tens of billions of dollars by aggressively prosecuting health care, waste and abuse, just as we saved millions of dollars going after health care fraud when i was attorney general. the people of connecticut, indeed of america, will not tolerate and should not tolerate billions in waste and duplication. it must be cut. that's where we should focus. not on the thoughtless slashing of essential services that provide a safety net for our most vulnerable citizens. when we cut, let's be smart about it. the people of connecticut are sick of the special breaks and tax loopholes that have been protected for far too long, tax breaks to companies that send jobs overseas, subsidies to huge oil and gas interests; some of them the most profitable companies in the history of the
